First Time Dad

Publisher's Summary. Perhaps the most powerful influence in the world is that of a dad on his child. Baseball gloves, dirty diapers, tiny little hands, first days of school, daddy-daughter dances, and learner's permits... and so much more! There's no way you can be ready for it all, but this is when you need to get a bit of a head start...

First Time Dad by Focus on the Family ministry veteran (and father of 6) John Fuller lets you in on the stuff you really need to know... because in just a few months or weeks or days, your life is going to change--forever. Set good priorities. Break bad habits and/or family patterns. Recognize and recover from some common fathering mistakes. Know that your words have immense power. And learn how to cultivate a lasting parent-child relationship. So, instead of wondering "oh man, oh man, oh man... what am I going to do now?" for 9 months... read this short book (plus it's pretty fun too) and get excited!

"Dad, your job is critical... And you can do it."

Review. Know a father-to-be or a new father? Then First-Time Dad by John Fuller is a perfect gift! Because while becoming a dad is an exciting milestone event, it can also be feel a little overwhelming too.

Stepping in to offer guidance to new father’s everywhere is First-Time Dad. Fuller is a Christian broadcaster/author, but more importantly he is a father of six. One caveat for non-Christian readers is that Christian references are weaved into the book, but not in a proselytizing manner.

In First-Time Dad, Fuller shares practical tips, anecdotes and philosophical points to ponder in bringing up baby, including:

What Fatherhood is All About;

Time and Priorities;

How a Baby Affects Your Family;

Loving Your Wife;

Helping Your Child Succeed; and

Spiritual Formation.

Fist-Time Dad is an accessible book with chapters mixing wisdom and practical advice and is suitable even for the most sleep-deprived fathers!

  1. Sounds good for a firsttime dad :=)

  2. Great pick, just in time for Fathers Day!

  3. There is so much on the market for moms but not enough for dads. This one sounds like a winner.

  4. I really enjoyed First Time Dad (even though I'm the mom!). I gave a copy to my brother recently who is going to be a new dad any day!
